Multimeter is a simple command line application for GNU/Linux that ( hopefully :) ) reads values from a digital multimeter using the serial interface.
DMMs that are known to work:
- Metex 4650CR
- Metex ME-11 (use -6 thanks to Steve Atwell <email@example.com>)
- Micronta 22-182 thanks to Denny Fox <firstname.lastname@example.org>
It maybe works with similar multimeters too.
The DMM should send it's data like that:
600 or 1200 bps, 7 data bits, 2 stop bits, no parity
Byte 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D Ex. 1 D C - 1 . 2 3 4 5 V \r Ex. 2 1 . 9 9 9 9 M o h m \r
Multimeter is free (see COPYING)
Just type 'make' and check if it works for you.
'multimeter -h' displays a little help message.
When the output is written into a file a HUP signal can be used to close and reopen the file (usefull for logrotates).
Send any comments, patches or what ever to Martin Hammerschmid <email@example.com>.
I'm also interested if works with other multimeters.
